First (or last, depends on how you see it) shoot for my LAST MAN STANDING series.

Model is Fabian. Dirt is charcoal, blood is syrup, food coloring and water and the sweat is rapeseed oil and water.
Foreground and background shot separately, combined in Photoshop. Quite a lot Photoshop work went in to this as you can see. I wanted it to look like a movie poster or something similar.

HERO
A little updated. More dirt on jeans, a little more light on his face and a tad more contrast on the lower part of the image.

Hope you like it.

Looks nice, blood color is a little bit off to my liking.

Thanks, I made the blood on his tanktop more red.. I've been working on this for so long now, I'm having a hard time seeing these things!
Crikey thats good ! Out of interest, did you green screen for the foreground shot ?
Thanks! No actually I didn't even have a real backdrop. You should have seen the original shot, hahahaha!

:stun: Bet that was a job to mask ! Giving the lasso tool a good work-out ?! :lol:

If you'd ever care to share a tiny version of the original, i'd be very keen to see it.

Nice skills behind the lens, and behind the screen ! :)

He put some in his mouth to let it pour down his chin. I'm not sure that dish soap would have been the tastiest of choises, hah! But he said it was disgusting anyway. Though this is the recipe I've been reading about on all photo and film making forums and it works pretty well!

Yes polygon lasso tool for the win. The hair was a bit easier than hair usually is because it was wet.
I don't know about posting the original, haha... It's pretty embarrassing.

beyond words, that is insane, any chance we could see the un edited?
Thanks! Maybe.. x)

Cool, thank you so much. :)

Hehe yes it feels a bit like it's 99,999999999% Photoshop work.

It's just one of those days...
We all look like this in Sweden.

Don't be embarrased, i'm sure most would appreciate the amazing effort and talent involved in getting to the end product ! :wink:

Anyway, im being pressuring, so i'll shut up :D;)

Excellent work on this one. Love the angle too.

Just in case you want for a future photoshoot
I have used the third recipe before and added a spoonful of Dawn...dish soap, to help with the cleanup of the red die. But it does not have the best taste. You can also check your local party shops...some still stock vampire blood capsules, you bite and the blood squirts out....like the type Rocky used. :lmao:

Homemade Fake Blood

1 c. Karo Syrup
1 Tbsp Water
2 Tbsp Red Food Coloring
1 tsp Yellow Food Coloring

Mix together in a mixing bowl and you're done. Try adding blue or yellow for a different shade.


Chocolate Fake Blood

1/2 c. Warm Water
4 Tbsp Corn Syrup
1 Tbsp Powdered Cocoa
1 tsp Red Food Coloring

Blend the water and cocoa together and then add the rest of the ingredients. Let the concoction sit for awhile and skim the bubbles off of the top. Add a couple of drops of yellow food coloring if you're not satisfied.


Simple Fake Blood

Clear Corn Syrup
Red Food Coloring
Milk - Optional

However much fake blood is how much corn syrup you'll need. Pour it into a bowl and mix in some red food coloring. Add some blue if you like. Adding a small amount of milk will make the blood appear darker and thicker.


Realistic Recipe

2/3 c. Corn Syrup
1/3 c. Warm Water
5 Tbsp Corn Starch
4 tsp red food coloring
1 Tbsp Powdered Cocoa
2 drops of green or yellow food coloring

Mix the corn starch with the water in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the corn syrup. Add the food coloring slowly, checking for color.
